I'm a little gimpy from falling on pavement - I put my hand down to brace myself when I clearly shouldn't of. Result was a fractured palm of my hand that required a wrist cast. The shockwave from impact actually caused another very minor facture in my elbow, but that was best left out of a cast. The wrist case is coming off next week, and its feeling ready to go. They actually offered me a wrist brace instead after 15 days, and I said to do whatever was going to heal me best, so they gave me 3 more weeks in the cast...it better have been worth it. I have asked for therapy, and previous exerience with this doc office leaves me a little wary of how much attention I'll get, so I'm checking with the community here for any imput. Its actually a top notch hand/extremeties clinic, but I've learned that you ultimately need to be your own doc at the same time.
If you want the story behind the fall, I just posted it to the thread for "lamest bike injury ever", where it clearly belonged.
For the purposes of this thread I was doing a 720 over a roadgap...and didn't clear the road.
